Translated headword: rugs
Vetting Status: high
They call "rugs" those [floor-coverings] that are smooth and not fleecy.[1] And "with rugs" [means] with carpets. For thus Attic [writers use the word]. Aristophanes [in] Wealth [writes]: "it will not be possible [for you] even to sleep on rugs."[2]

The headword, accusative plural, is tacitly quoted from Aristophanes, Wasps 676. The glossing combines comment from the scholia on that verse with scholia from the another Aristophanic passage, explicitly quoted.
[1] This is less awkward in Photius, Lexicon s.v. yilodapi/das (and psi 102): 'smooth-rugs: that is what they call rugs that are smooth and not fleecy'
[2] Abridged from Aristophanes, Wealth [Plutus] 528 (web address 1).
